I’m quite partial to my own. She makes me feel loved. She tells me I’m wise and pretty.
When I lived in Kansas, we would go on long walks together and talk for hours.
She is an unbelievable hostess and cook… but she’s very unhelpful in teaching me cook because she just flings something together with no recipe. That’s talent.
I’m told I look just like her which I take as a huge compliment. She’s gorgeous. She also dresses to the nines… I like to think my sister Kelly and I helped with this.
So what to do for a mother as wonderful as this? Here are some ideas I have for my mom, and I think they should be great for many mothers out there.
I just happened to run across whitney smith pottery shop a year ago on etsy, and I have been just waiting for a reason to buy one her gorgeous items. Some of her items are pricey but would be worth the investment. Pottery doesn’t really ever go out of style.
Myrubberstamp is another etsy shop I’ve found. There is something charming about address stamps. Maybe it’s because I love getting mail, or that I haven’t had a residence I’ve lived in for more than year since college. Here are some cute ideas.
Books are always charming. I love flipping through the pages of cookbooks and design books. It’s like I can feel the inspiration and creativity being soaked up into my fingertips. Below is my favorite baking cookbook, gorgeous art book, and an inspirational decorating book.
Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan
This book is full of genius classic and interesting recipes. I know my mom loves the blueberry pie recipe from here.
Artist Makoto Fujimura was commissioned to illuminate The Gospels. I saw this gorgeous book in person, and it would be an unbelievable treasured gift. Yes, it’s pricier, but it is actual art.
I picked this book up from West Elm last fall. It’s full of the most beautifully decorated houses. Very inspiring.
Hope this is helpful for you and your mommy.
